Maps of Northern Rhodesia and Zambia

Random Boma links:
These are scans of large maps of the areas noted below. Due to their size the images are large, and may take a while to download depending on the speed of your connection. All maps but the Nkana-Kitwe map open in a new window.

The Nkana-Kitwe map is worth noting because it is not simply a static picture; it is an interactive, vector-based map that you can examine in great detail with no loss of clarity. It does require a small plug in, but the quick download is well worth it to see the detail in this map. Additionally, embedded into the map are links to pictures of the area on other parts of the GNR.

Linking to and Using these Maps

You are welcome to link to our map collection from your site. However, please link to this page (www.greatnorthroad.org/maps) only and not directly to the maps. These are large files, and we would appreciate the courtesy of your respecting the cost of our bandwidth by allowing people the chance to discover the rest of our Web site. "Hotlinking" (calling images from our site directly into pages on your site to make it look like the image is yours) and framing are expressly forbidden. If you would like the visitors to your site to see our maps, please link them to this page -- do not copy the maps to your own server. Finally, please do not remove the GNR information from these maps -- we have invested considerable time, energy and expense in making these maps available on the Web, and leaving our information intact is the least we can ask.

File Sizes

The size of these files is a function of the amount of detail they contain. It is not possible, using a bitmap/raster format, to make these files appreciably smaller than they already are without significant degradation of quality. We do what we can to minimise download times, but we're sure the wait will be worth it even if you have a slower connection. The small images are intended to act as a preview so that you can see what is in store for you when you have downloaded the full-size image. You can't see any detail on these small images, but you can see the "big picture".
